Packers Trade First Round Draft Choice To Cleveland

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Green Bay, WI)  —  For the first time since 2008, the Green Bay Packers do not have a first round draft choice. General manager Ted Thompson traded the 29th overall pick to Cleveland Thursday night and got two selections, the first in tonight’s second round, the 33rd overall and the first choice on Saturday in the fourth round, the 108th. Thompson says he did not have to give up a lot to get one extra pick, moving down only four places at the top, but the Packers missed out on Wisconsin linebacker T-J Watt, who went to Pittsburgh with the 30th pick. And U-W offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk was taken 32nd by New Orleans, giving the Badgers two first rounders for the first time since 2011. Ramczyk played at Stevens Point Area Senior High School and two years at U-W Stevens Point before becoming a standout left tackle with the Badgers last season.
